  1. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Greetings. Recently bought a 2014 650 with less than 3000 miles. Following first ride on gravel/sand, I noticed leak under bike below the rear shock. Was minimal. Then took my wife around the neighborhood, and came back to a real gusher. Searched through the forums, fearing that I was going to...

    I have searched the forum but I was not able to find any threads on this issue I am having. I would really appreciate some feedback though and find out if other people have had the same problem and how they resolved it. Essentially it is a brake fluid leakage of the front brake, leading to...

    35k on my WeeBeast (bought at 30k), and I just noticed the right front side of the engine is covered in oil gunk. Cleaned it off, rode fifteen minutes and checked for the culprit. It appears that the front valve cover gasket is leaking. Everything else seems dry, even on top of the valve cover...

    Hi everyone, I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. This forum has been super useful. I'm running into a coolant leak issue and I was hoping to get some advice from some of you more experienced guys. I discovered a coolant leak on my '07 650 wee strom, and I'm not sure what the best way...
  7. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    So for the past few months, I noticed a small leak coming from the front sprocket area of my bike. At first, it really wasn't that big of a deal because I mainly park outside on the street, but it started getting annoying after highway rides, the oil would leak onto the exhaust and start...
  8. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Hello guys. Under my shiny ride this AM was a drip or two of coolant (no oil). It was coming from the rubber tube under the bottom fairing that is obviously meant for this purpose, but I am wondering at the cause. I will take a pic tonight to show you the exact hose but it "appears" to go to a...
